TKP was founded on 10 September 1920 in Baku. The resistance struggling the occupation in Anatolia met the young Soviet revolution at that city. That very day, the communists of Turkey gathered together in a single party and declared being the comrades from Turkey of the international struggle for a socialist World.
97 years ago the unity of the anti imperialist struggle with the struggle for the political power of the working class was declared.
What those 97 years taught to the working peoples of the world is nothing but the proof for that.
It is a proletarian revolution which will end the capitalist exploitation. It is a socialist order. Hence, now socialism is also a must for an independent and free country.
97 years ago TKP was founded by those who had seen socialism as the future for humanity.
After 97 years TKP says: Without socialism, there is no humanity. No liberty, no enlightenment, no justice, no equity, no fraternity.
Socialism is not merely the emancipation of the labour. Socialism is now a matter of existence.
And we, after 97 years, once again announce to our people and the people of the world that: We will complete the job we had started. We will found the Socialist Turkey. We will found a Socialist World.
We are not asking for the impossible but the very possible. We lead the only possible way to remain human.
Salute to the bright future of Turkey and the World.
Salute to the ones to join TKP’s struggle.
For many many years…
Communist Party of Turkey- TKP
